Pretty clear brassy color with small head that fades to a sticky ring. Aroma is a pungent combination of mango, pineapple, dank weed, and woodsy evergreen. A welcome change from the grapefruit/citrus bombs that seem to be ubiquitous. It's a little too sharp though.

The flavor is similar to the nose, but better and more complex. Tropical fruit dominates, with some resinous and herbal notes in the background. Pale malt is squashed. Ripe peach comes in on the very end as the pithy bitterness lingers.

The medium body has a nice stickiness, thanks to the hop oils. Carbonation is medium as well. Double Trouble is a very good beer by one of my top 5 breweries, but there's just too much of a flavor I can't pinpoint that comes a little close to oniony/chemical/medicinal. Overdone Simcoe or Summit? Don't get me wrong: If I brewed this I would be ecstatic. But there are more than a few IIPAs out there that are better (and cheaper) than this.

So I just finished off a growler (64oz) of this beautifully concocted beer. What appeared to be almost a blonde, was full of great aroma, robust floral taste with large hoppy greatness, and a very sweet finish. Looking forward to enjoying this tasty treat in the future.
